LEGO Technic 42143 Not Delayed After All; Ferrari Daytona SP3 Rolling June 1

Speculation might runs rampant when LEGO teases new sets and then delays them before revealing more information. The latest LEGO Technic supercar set seems to follow this pattern. The biennially-released product was supposed to release this year. It even got a set number – 42143 – and launch date of August 2022. Then word came out that the set could be delayed until 2023. This triggered discussion on what vehicle the Technic set would depict, with the wildest theories like the Tesla Cybertruck. Fortunately LEGO made an announcement this week about Technic 42143: it’s coming next month!
